Lecture as part of the GIGA Distinguished Speaker Lecture Series.
On 9 September 2016, the anniversary of the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea carried out its fifth nuclear weapons test. This was already the second test this year. Apparently North Korea is accelerating its nuclear weapons programme.
What is behind all this and how does the international community deal with states that violate the non-proliferation regime?
Professor Etel Solingen from the University of California Irvine addressed these urgent issues in her talk “On Sanctions and Inducements – Dealing with Nuclear Proliferation” that very Friday. She was invited by the GIGA to come to Hamburg as part of the Distinguished Speaker Lecture Series. Her captivating lecture was followed by many questions from the interested audience, highlighting the multiple layers of the topic. (audio recording available)
